"First Dibs" Specials in Downtown Edmonds

This year, Downtown Edmonds merchants are bringing back the ‘First Dibs’ tradition! Over the years people have enjoyed strolling the 3rd Thursday Art walk in November and getting a jump start on all things holiday in Downtown Edmonds. The Edmonds Bookshop has held the tradition annually for many years. This year you’re invited to celebrate the season by getting ‘First Dibs’ on new, holiday merchandise at 24 local participating shops and restaurants. Your family and friends can join the festivities on Thursday, December 6th from 5pm-8pm to enjoy great shopping and check off your gift giving list. 

The 24 participating businesses will have individual offerings specific to their shop that are sure to inspire, entice and even reward shoppers. Pick up a bottle of bubbly for your New Year’s Eve festivities after a taste of champagne at Arista Wines. Kimberly Koenig, owner of Rogue, suggests you employ her favorite personal holiday shopping approach “One for me, one for you 😊”. C’est la Vie, ZINC Art+Object and Cascadia Art Museum are offering a gift with purchase. 

Strolling and shopping is hard work, of course, so let MarKet Fishmonger and Eatery give you a boost with a sample of their award-winning chowder; Anchor Chic will have festive treats for your sweet tooth; and Cole Gallery will warm you up with a cup of delicious cider.

It’s an opportunity to explore unique retail offerings in our historic downtown while enjoying the lights and sounds of the season. Sissel Brunette, an Edmonds native remembers First Dibs of past, where girlfriends would meet for dinner and then help each other find great gifts for family and friends. “It was always an evening of fun, creating memories and making time to connect in our busy lives. I’m so glad First Dibs is back!”
